Thomas Twining founded Twinings in 1706 around 40 years after Tea was first imported into Britain, Thomas worked with an East Indian Tea merchant for 5 years learning the trade inside out before going out on his own after buying a Coffee shop in The Strand, London. Back in those days Coffee was hugely popular and Tea was a new and then a relatively unknown beverage but Thomas’s vast knowledge of Tea gave him an advantage and soon people from all over London were going to the Coffee shop to drink Tea.
In 1717 Thomas acquired buildings opposite the original Coffeehouse and made them into a dry Tea & Coffee shop the first of its kind on the planet. The original Twinings shop is still there and is still a great Tea and Coffee shop selling Twinings much-loved Tea blends which are also available online.
